I am currently in Kuwait drinking something they call 'French coffee'. I like it a lot but I cannot figure out what it is and the internet isn't helping (nor is the waitress). Its texture is mealy (unfintered), it's strong, there's a lot of sediment, no milk (none offered either), there seems to be a hint of sugar in it (was offered the option of extra when ordering) and it's served in a cup that is somewhat bigger than an espresso one but much smaller than an American coffee cup. It's definitely not Turkish coffee. What is this stuff and how do I make it at home?
